Ben Roethlisberger passed Terry Bradshaw as the Pittsburgh Steelers' career passing leader on Thursday night, and he needed fewer games to reach that mark.


NFL teams kick into gear during Week 6 and we have all the best images.

Roethlisberger came into Thursday night's game with Tennessee needing 286 yards to tie Bradshaw's 27,989 yards passing. Bradshaw did that in 168 games, and Thursday night was Roethlisberger's 119th career game.

The current Steelers quarterback came into the game with 27,703 yards passing, and he passed Bradshaw with a 17-yard completion to Heath Miller with about 3:00 left in the third quarter. That gave him 291 yards passing.

Roethlisberger finished the 26-23 loss to the Titans with 363 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
